Pelosi and Hoyer: 'Un-American' attacks can't derail health care debate

Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer take to the pages of USA Today to remind us:
Americans have been waiting for nearly a century for quality, affordable health care.

Health coverage for all was on the national agenda as early as 1912, thanks to

Teddy Roosevelt's Bull Moose presidential run. Months after

World War II came to an end in 1945,

President Harry Truman called on Congress to guarantee all Americans the "right to adequate medical care and protection from the economic fears of sickness."
Statists have always dreamed of state run health care. Pelosi and Hoyer don't understand that many people think they are "un-American" for pushing something that's no where to be justified in the U.S. Constitution.
